Victor Jara – Juan Sin Tierra lyrics

Voy a cantar el corrido
De un hombre que fue a la guerra
Y anduvo en la sierra herido
Para conquistar su tierra

Lo conoc en la batalla
Y entre tanta balacera
El que es revolucionario
Puede morir donde quiera

El general nos deca
Pelen con mucho valor
Les vamos a dar parcela
Cuando haya reparticin

Mi padre fue pen de hacienda
y yo un revolucionario
Mis hijos pusieron tiendas
Y mi nieto es funcionario

Grit Emiliano Zapata
"Quiero tierra y libertad!"
Y el gobierno se rea
Cuando lo ban a enterrar

Vuela Vuela Palomita
Prate en aquella higuera
Que aqu se acaba el corrido
Del mentado Jun sin Tierra
